Mood: #Frustrated

I don’t know about y’all, but lately I’ve had a lingering low-grade headache. Cognitive dissonance definitely has me frustrated and flailing. As I embrace the suck of it, I’m hoping that the struggle leads to some valuable growth and understanding. Or maybe I’m just dehydrated and need to drink more water.
